It's time again for the girls
in the Christmas Card club
to show their makes with the latest theme.
This was set by Karen who asked for
Pink & White , also use
black,silver or gold but little accents only.
Well this very nearly had me calling time
as I was pretty sure I had no pink cards
in my recycled christmas card box.
But I will not be beat!
I found these 3 card fronts that have a smattering
of a pink tinge to them.
That was good enough for me.
Here they are.
It might be very subtle but there's pink in them there cards!
Here is what I made with them.
I trimmed the edges of the snow scene with
my Xcut corner puncher. I didn't want
to make the image any smaller as the signature
of the artist is on the bottom right. This is only half
of the orignal card as I had previously used
to make another card.
I backed with gold mirror card which went well
with the brown trees. The snow has a lovely
pastel pink hue to it which I picked out with the
Raspberry pink backing card.
Sentiment is a gold sticker along with the stars.
I trimmed the oblong berry card down and very
slightly enhanced the subtle pink glitter with my
pearlsecent chalks to give a deeper tone.
I used silver mirror card this time to reflect
the silver berries and cut a frame with my
Xcut Ornate frame die.
I backed with sherbert pink card stock.
Matching bow and pearls from my stash.
Finally the last one.
I couldn't get a decent photo showing
the pink glitter background as it's
stupid o'clock in the morning and
the light is playing tricks with my camera.
I made a tent fold card this time using the same
sherbert pink card stock.
I trimmed the scene down very slightly and adhered
pink ribbon on the one side to make a bow trim
before adhering to black card stock.
The chipboard sentiment is actually a bauble
but I cut the hook from the top to make the round
which just fitted the blank circle on the card.
Chipboard is by Scrapmatts
Christmas ornaments CB 1227.
I hope I have used the black, silver and gold
as accents sparingly enough for your Karen!
Yay . We have the internet up and running
so I can get this posted.
Not counting our chickens yet
(or having eggs for breakfast)
as we have been at this stage before.
Be round to see you all shortly
